i want it so that when i go out i dont have ppl looking, feeling sorry for me, lookin at ya weird, starring.i want to "normal" and not "that guy with.."
i want not have to worry about it, worry about taking my vitamins, revolving my life around it. Its better now but even after the worst of it i still feel like its there and i still cant look people in the eye or feel "proud" and "confident". Be nice to have someone special to to be with.. which i think if i looked better would happen then... idk.

Here is the major reason I want clear skin: Because for the few months after I stopped accutane, I felt the best I had felt in years. I felt so much more confident, made more friends, was willing to be more social, didn't have to wear makeup, etc. People would compliment me on my skin and it made me feel really good. But now I feel uncomfortable in my own skin again. I look in the mirror and feel like crying. I HATE wearing makeup because I feel like it's somehow fake, like people aren't seeing me for who I really am because I feel ugly and embarrassed and have to cover up. I feel helpless. I have literally tried everything. Even accutane. I am at my wits end, I am seriously going to go insane if this keeps happening to me. I'm 21, none of my friends or the people I work with have acne. I feel alienated and alone in this struggle, no one in my life can empathize. When my skin gets bad, I isolate myself. And when isolation isn't an option (like I have school or work) I spend the entire day trying to avoid certain lighting, sunlight, etc. Or just avoiding people altogether. I'm so sick of dealing with skin problems. I can deal with my scarring, but I can't deal with acne. I'm sick of it.

I can work out, put on nice clothes, put on nice make up, do my hair, but I feel like that all falls into the background and all everybody sees is bad skin.

i must not eat well,
i must be dirty,
or *the worst*
i must have been a drug addict!
I swear, if i hear ONE MORE PERSON tell me I have "meth face," i will lose my freaking mind. that just takes the cake.
i am tired of people looking at me like i brought this upon myself. do they really think people want this? it's no wonder people living with Acne start to remove themselves from social situations. it can be very hard to introduce yourself to a new person (or someone you haven't seen in ages) and not imagine what they are thinking. even if they *didn't* think about your skin condition, it's hard to forgive and forget all the prior experiences.
but the question for myself is:
how much longer am i going to hold other people accountable for the way i feel? how much longer will i let these thoughts control me? i need to find my own intrinsic value. i must be more to myself than what i see in the mirror.

I know, it might sound stupid question for you, but try to think deeper, and answer. Why do you want to have clear skin? What is your purpose? What could give you clear skin, how would it change your life? Do you really need it?
I want it cause, I don't have it, and without cosmetics, I likely never will with or without seeking medical attention. Once damage is done, you can only make it better. It can't ever be fixed. I thought acne was the worst but, scars and permanent damage are the worst. All the praying, all the money spent on organics, nutrition, and medication were a lost cause. My dad says if I didn't do that, it may even be a lot worse, worst beyond my comprehension. Maybe he is right. It still sucks. I dispies my shitty genes but, I am trying to get past this, treat myself with love and respect. Meet some girls and maybe have a relationship. I bought a audio cd book that is about confidence from paul mckenna. It is no miracle but, it has definitely helped and doing the book and audio regularly, you strengthen confidence. You also need to take chances, go out when depressed, and be social even when you don't feel like it. If not, acne/scars/circumstances win. We can't let that happen.
